E*trade by its name was supposed to be a fast-paced cutting-edge online trading firm. But I was part of a group that made had nothing to with online trading and the company failed to utilize the potential of that unit.
Recruitment Coordinator (Current Employee) – Jersey City, NJ – September 6, 2018
A lot of work flexibility. The company is growing at a fast pace so a lot of opportunities to grow and good team work environment. The company sponsors a lot of ad hoc employee appreciation events which help to foster a good working environment.

It was your basic call center experience. You do get to learn a lot about investments, and are facing new questions everyday for a while. You mostly end up navigating clients through the website though.
Decent culture for a brokerage firm. Good managers. Training and skill building oppurtunities.
It's a call center., Very metric based and sales heavy, Every trader had to work weekends in the Salt Lake City center by the time I left

Dynamic env, modernizing quickly, good people and top leadership I wish I was had not left -- their best changes happened right after I left. People return there after having tried other companies. Good veteran staff, and new fresh blodd and ideas as well -- good mix for evolving.
LICENSED STOCK BROKER (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – August 15, 2018
You learn a lot at Etrade though it can be a grind. If you are working in the call center it is strict time with no opportunity. The culture is trying to shift to retain talent however you are at the mercy of your manager. No flexibility is the hardest part of the job, the most enjoyable is the coworkers.
You learn a lot
it's a call center environment, could have a bad manager
Senior 10b5-1 Specialist (Current Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – July 26, 2018
At times it feels like management will hold you back because you are more of an asset working for them versus promoted those who do well. Those who struggle seem to get advantages when it comes to promotion because they are easily replaced
Director, Credit Risk (Former Employee) – Arlington, VA – July 23, 2018
E*Trade provides opportunity to gain relevant transferable experience. The environment and culture is fast-paced and can be challenging; however, hard work is rewarded and the compensation is fair. I've spent 12.5 years with E*Trade and have developed lifelong relationships with my several of my colleagues.
